This paper introduces an electronic circuit implementation of an integrate-and-fire cell. The cell generates output current pulses when the input light intensity exceeds a given threshold. A firing cell also transmits its firing pattern to neighbouring cells, thereby causing blocks of cells to fire in synchrony when their detectors receive similar input(More)
As an alternative to traditional fossil fuel extracted energy, wind energy has been acknowledged as one of the most important sources of renewable energies in the world. This clean and natural source of energy could be a key to solving the worldwide energy crisis with low environmental impact. The increased penetration of wind power into the power grids(More)
In this paper, a rate-distortion function (RDF), R(D), is presented for a variable block-size classiication (VBSC) model. We obtain a theoretical R(D) bound on the performance of vector quantization (VQ) based on the VBSC model. It is theoretically proved that the R(D) bound of the VBSC model is lower than those of the Gaussian model and the xed block-size(More)

This paper describes an attempt to combine advantages of the signed digit number representation, applied at the word-level, and the residue number system applied at the digit-level, to achieve arithmetic decomposition of high-radix systems. Also introduced is a new decomposition algorithm for multiple-output Boolean functions based on partition products.(More)
